about the presidential debate. for the first time mitt romney and president obama will meet face-to-face, in denver tonight. the questions are, what would you ask if had you an opportunity to pose a question to one of the candidates? what should you be watching for, both in content and in body language? who goes in with an advantage? who has a disadvantage? this morning we talked to the obama campaign deputy campaign manager, stephanie cutter is our guest, barbara come stostock wi join us as well and brett o'donnell will talk us through handicapping this debate, all happening at 7 a.m. eastern time when we kick off "starting point". >> excellent. >>> 46 minutes past the hour. must see video. we've been showing this to you all morning long. cameras mounted inside a plunging empty jetliner to capture the moment it captures to the ground. find out what was learned about seat location and your chances of survival. >> amazing. anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issue
will be on denver for the first presidential debate. president obama will be making his case for four more years and mitt romney trying to convince the country he is the better man for the job. now, right now it looks like voters need convincing on both sides because in a brand new cnn poll of polls it shows a very close race. the president maintaining a razor-thin three-point lead with a month to go at this point. our cnn political director mark preston is live from denver right in the middle of it all. mark, you have new details on what to expect tonight. >> well, john, yes. there's no arguing, this is the most important moment of this presidential debate. in just a few hours as you said, mitt romney, barack obama squaring off here in denver. it will be a 90-minute debate. it will cover six different segments. most of it, though, john, is going to be on the economy. there's going to be three segments to focus on the economy. one segment on foreign policy. one segment on the role of governing and one segment on the role of government in people's lives, john. so how this is going to be set up is
preparation for the presidential debate, president obama and mitt romney are going to see the first one right here on wednesday. that debate is coming. and you're going to see where they are in the process of preparing in just a moment. the debates and the election, of course, are serious. and that would be our first story. serious. until we discovered this video, stunning video shot from the helmet of a u.s. soldier, it seems like a video game. but this is not xbox which you're about to see. it is real. the pentagon is telling us it happened, it happened in afghanistan in april. afghanistan is a place we have not heard these candidates talk about much, have we? nothing from romney during the republican convention, very little from obama, especially at the u.n. this last week. the debates will likely be a different story because this weekend the death toll for americans in the war surpassed the 2000 mark. the soldier who made the helmet cam video suffered only minor wounds and has returned to duty. but it's amazing that he suffered only minor wounds when you see this incredible story. his fig
mates think of last night's presidential debate? joe biden says president obama did a solid job presenting the democrats' message. >> if you just finished watching the debate like i did, i'm sure you're as proud of president obama as i am. you know, i've been saying for a long time, this election presents the starkest choice in my memory. i think the president did a wonderful job in making just how clear that is. >> nice of the vice president being in a dark room in a disclosed location. >> paul ryan agreed with those who say mitt romney was a big winner. he said mitt won this debate by articulating his positive vision for a better america and the specific solutions needed to achieve. that is interesting. one of the major critiques is he had no specific. >> and one issue they never touched is immigration. 20% of the population in colorado where last night's debate was held is latinos. they're more optimistic about the economy than nonlatino white voters. still, six in ten latinos say the economy is in poor shape. a separate poll found a majority of latinos think the economy is a
is not actually presidential, it is just my favorite obama moment. because here is the deal. the presidency itself is weak, which is why americans want presidents themselves to be strong. i just encourage us not to confuse aggressiveness with strength. and that is our show for today, thank you to ken g, robert and chloe for sticking around. also, thank you for joining us, despite my laryngitis, and we'll see you next weekend. coming up next, alex witt. ♪ ♪ [ multiple sounds making melodic tune ] ♪ [ male announcer ] at northrop grumman, every innovation, every solution, comes together for a single purpose -- to make the world a safer place. that's the value of performance. northrop grumman. droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me.
obama is speaking to certain people, whether they are workers at gm plants or black audience he tends to drop his g's and gets from folk i sy. >> in this was the middle of very successful presidential campaign. the media were siding by content to say obama says it, he is race transcending visionary beyond partisan. all this stuff that reporters were saying in 2008, they could have looked at this. it's been on youtube for five years. >> it is not same as 47%. >> why is it not. is it different? >> one difference mitt romney said he was wrong about the 47%. it took him a week. he said, quote, completely wrong. five years later, has president obama adjusted to anything in that speech? no. >> and the difference is the "new york times" has covered the 47% video and they have not covered the video from barack obama. >> it's on not in the same universe. it rail isn't. i know conservatives are trying push that, but it is not in the same universe. >> jon: all right, next on news watch, uni' vision's report on fast and furious might put the mainstream media to shame. >>. >> jon: univision the sp
debate you've ever seen where barack obama was outstyled. body language, mitt romney looked much more presidential and come out mitt romney and continue to strike contrasts say that we are not a government with a country, we're a country with a government and empower the people in every way possible and point out that, you know, americans have lost 40% of their net worth under this administration. as you pointed out earlier, gas prices are twice as high. we have acts of war on anniversaries of 9/11 with no response other than appointing the task force to understand whether it was a spontaneous task force. point these things out and do not play prevent defense or you will lose to barack obama. >> you can bet the president will come back on offense in the next debate, for sure. bernie thompson, thank you so much. i enjoyed listening to your radio show the other day, as well. >>> one of the nation's top ceos accuses the obama administration of cooking the books. we'll hear from the former head of ge, next. there's big news. presenting androgel 1.62%. both are used to treat men with low t
, in the last presidential campaign, debates were not president obama's strengths. in fact, he's a much better speechmaker than he is a debater. and don't forget, he hasn't debated an awful lot lately. when the president of the united states and you're in the oval office, people tend not to debate with you an awful lot. you live in the presidential bubble. he hasn't been on stage with other people challenging him. so in a way, he sort of has got to get used to this routine over and over again, where as mitt romney has been on a debate stage an awful lot of times. >> if i recall, you were in a lot of those debates, he's tough, he's no wallflower that mitt romney. what is his biggest challenge, though? going into wednesday? >> the biggest challenge, i think mitt romney has got to do a couple of things. they're at odds with each other. first thing goehe's got to do i take on president obama directly when it comes to policy. what he has to tell the voters is i've got a better plan for an economic recovery than the president. he has to challenge him directly. but, brooke, he has to do it in a way,
. >> eliot: good evening. i'm eliot spitzer and this is "viewpoint." the first presidential debate of the 2012 campaign is over. president obama could be forgiven if he wanted to press the reset button. the candidates were all smiles as they came out shook hands in denver last night but when the 90-minute debate was over, mitt romney was the only contender with a reason to keep smiling. according to a cnn poll, 67% of adults thought romney won the debate compared to just 25% who picked the president. 46% of undecided voters in a cbs poll gave the win to romney to just 22% for mr. obama. nearly a third of the undecideds were undecided. romney's positive rating rose above 50% for the first time in this campaign in a reuters poll. the president's ratings stayed unchanged at 56%. romney stayed on the attack even though his positions were to be charitable and flatly untrue. here's some of what he said about his tax plan and the economy. >> romney: i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. my plan is not to put in place any t
big presidential debate. the showdown in denver between president obama and republican challenger mitt romney. you know romney is looking for a new look and, of course, the president is trying to avoid the incumbent trap of trying to appear arrogant or underprepared. a lot on the line right now. >> a big moment in the campaign because there are so many eyes on this. it's the first of three debates between these two men. it's scheduled to last 90 minutes, and with just 33 days until the election some 60 million people are expected to tune in. former republican candidate rick santorum knows what it's like to go against mitt romney in a debate. we'll talk to him straight ahead, as well as the president's deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter. >>> also ahead, we brought you his incredible story last week, a man looking for a second chance to fulfill his dream after he suffered a debilitating injury in his one and only at-bat in the major leagues. last night, seven years later, adam greenberg finally got that chance. we'll show you how he did and talk to him about the big moment the morn
presidential debate. president obama will stay in nevada for the next few days to wrap up final preparations. he campaigned in las vegas last night to a group of 11,000 supporters and in an effort to manage his expectations said he's just an okay debater. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. >> you will. >> i don't know about that. president romney is a good debater. >> that is in response to reports that romney is prepping and plans on taking jabs at the president. obama spokeswoman is saying don't expect the president to fire any blows and he looks forward to continuing his conversation with the american people. the president is traveling with a prep team, david axelrod anita dunn and senator john kerry. kerry is playing romney during the mock debates with the president. the team is hunkering down to get the president ready. romney is campaigning in denver today with a stop with the wings over the rockies museum. paul ryan is at a rally in iowa. early voting in iowa is now underway. a washington post poll out this morning shows 63% o
situation room." >>> we're down to just 35 days until the actual presidential election exactly five weeks from today. here's where the race may be decided. we're getting our first look inside the debate hall over at the university of denver. barack obama and mitt romney, they are getting ready to face-off tomorrow night. and as cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta discovered, it will be one of the very two times the two men have actually met in person. jim is joining us live from littleton, colorado. what's the latest on this particular score, jim? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you right now that ann romney is about to take the stage behind me. she's going to be holding an event here in littleton, colorado, in a few moments from now. she's been one of this campaign's most effective surrogates and been very busy doing just that while her husband, mitt romney, has been doing debate preparations just a short distance away in denver. it will be fascinating, wolf, to watch the body language between mitt romney and president obama tomorrow night when they meet face-to-face as
falsehoods and turnabouts. there are still two more presidential debates. and mr. obama has the facts on his side to expose the hollowness of his opponent, but first he has to decide to use them aggressively. i think a lot of people felt that way. >> jon meacham, you'd have to go back to the 2004 bush debate. first bush debate to find a clear winner like we had last night. when you have even liberal publications, liberal editorial pages saying that barack obama didn't show up, and mitt romney won it going away. >> i think that's right. and i think -- it's interesting that incumbent presidents, as we've been talking about, you know, are not accustomed to this forum. it's been a long time since he's been challenged like that. i remember president bush, george w. bush, was quoted -- used to be quoted as saying, you know, people will be out in the oval office waiting room and they'll say i'm going to go in and tell the president, great texas phrase, what all, and they get in and they say oh, what a lovely tie, mr. president. and i think that's a big part of this. and i think that that's one of t
obama's mining for more hispanic votes there. albeit, he'd love to have more cuban american votes as well. >> and fairly quickly, both presidential candidates have made at least 20 campaign stops in the campaign so far. and in issues affecting seniors, both medicare and medicaid, have been the focus, obviously. elderly are incredibly reliable voters. in a short period of time, what do both candidates have to tell florida seniors? >> they're going to try to convince that voting population that the ore one would be worse for medicare, in short. you've heard a lot come out of their mouths about what the other one would do, what their plans are. mitt romney has said he had his own plan, and tried to talk about the money obama has moved. so medicare, medicare, medicare. >> thanks to you both, anne kornblut and mark caputo. >>> the number twos getting on their ticket, getting ready for their matchup. what they're doing ahead of the vice presidential debate. and a lot has been said about the president's performance at this week's debate. we'll talk about the obama campaign national vice

going on the offensive? i moderated four obama debates in the last cycle four years ago including one-on-one debate at the kodak theater with hillary clinton and barack obama, one of their last debates before he won the democratic presidential nomination. you know, he wasn't a fabulous debater but he was solid and when he had to he went after her and went after john edwards and the other democratic candidates but over the past four years he has been president and clearly not involved in these kind of debates and his advisers should have been better prepared and they have have worked with him a the although more to get ready and they have have studied. mitt romney was a very good debater and i did three debates this time where he really undermined rick perry or rick santorum or newt gingrich. he knew how to do it and it was underlined last well. >> the voters better hope they are not going to the polls today and -- or doing the early voting. >> still two mow presidential debates -- more presidential debates and vice presidential debates. there is a flip side of saying the president wil
response showed a tremendous lack of presidential character. >> michelle is a former obama administration top aide, currently advising obama's re-election campaign on national security issues, served three years as undersecretary of defense for policy. michelle, good to see you. the new ad that is out now, you know, everybody has on the job training here. we know that president obama, when he first came into office didn't have a lot of foreign policy experiences. can you cut mitt romney some slack on that first visit, or do you think that really indicates a lack of understand ogt world stage? >> well, his initial performance abroad certainly did not inspire confidence. the truth is beyond that he hasn't been able to articulate a clear vision as to where he would take this country. he talks a lot about criticizing the president, criticizing his policies, but when you actually look at what he says, there's -- he seems to either embrace the president's plan or where he differentiates himself, really goes way, way from the mainstream and takes us into some pretty uncertain territory. i think
the stage for the first presidential debate. the university of denver in colorado. now, this is where for 9 on minutes president obama, former massachusetts governor mitt romney will go at it tonight head-to-head, face-to-face, and while they're on the stage, whole lot will be happening behind the scenes. want to bring in cnn political director mark preston who gives us a look. >> heetsz head inside where the action is going to take place. >> she must be wonder whoing will be sitting in the audience tonight for this first presidential debate. i don't know the answer, but peter here with the commissioner on presidential debates does. >> on wednesday night at the university of denver we'll have students, vip's, and those that the campaigns have invited. they'll be on floort and on the balcony behind us. >> how do you get invited if you don't get an invitation from one of the candidates? >> it would be very difficult to get into the debate. >> who is going to be at that far podium? >> at the far podium will be governor romney, and then at the near podium will be president obama. >> how is it g
." 1:00 on the east coast, 10:00 a.m. out west. 31 days until the presidential election. it's a tale of two coats. president obama heads to california tomorrow expected to tout the new jobs numbers. mitt romney is in florida today holding a rally in a matter of hours in that battle ground state as he refines his message on the employment picture. >>> and some big fundraising numbers out today. president obama and the democrats raised $181 million in september. that's the highest monthly re-election total so far. >>> also today, the romney camp claims it has collected more than $12 million in online donations and seeing bigger crowds on the campaign trail since wednesday's debate. >>> meanwhile about those jobs numbers, it is a figure splashed across the front page of most of the papers that hit your doorstep or driveways today. 7.8% below the critical 8% level. that number falling .2% from last month to the lowest level of the president's time in office spurred a conspiracy theory started in large part by former g.e. ceo jack welch who questioned the integrity of the number in a twee

have -- we talk about republicans at a presidential debate. three republican candidates raise their hand saying we don't believe in evolution. where is the democratic equivalent of that? >> barack obama in 2008 said that vaccines might cause autism, and in 2008 it was well-known by then that vaccines didn't cause autism. hillary clinton said the same thing and so did john mccain. all three made the connection between thimerosol with a trace of mercury in it. that's been debunked. >> again, you're talking about dabbling in some theories, and completely grant you that it's troubling when you talk about people on the left that pushed this idea of a vaccine/autism link. that's troubling and needs to be called out. when you talk about as a party, mitt romney's in his acceptance speech at republican convention mocked the idea of combating climate change. he talked about obama promising to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. he mocked it, and it was a huge applause line. you have a republican party platform using scare quotes to talk about climate change. you have republ

requesting for my daughter. i asked the caller to take a message. i am from the obama campaign and i am calling to inquire how your daughter would be voting in the upcoming. my daughter is a practicing catholic and would not cast a vote for a presidential cand date who is disrespected the catholic faith. because of abortion and health and services . forces catholic to pay for abortion control and pills and sterilization. >> gretchen: did she say anything about mitt romney. she said i am a practicing catholic and i whole heartedly supporting obama. i said you are understanding of the pope's five nonnegotiablables that our bishop tells us. that abortion is an evil . she said president obama does not support abortion. i said did you not watch the national convention where planned parenthood was speaking about the support for abortion . she told me manned parenthood supported children's health and pregnancy care for women. i said are you kidding. planned parenthood is the largest provider of abortion. >> did they discuss mitt romney's faith and him being a mormon . >> yes, they did. well, h
thought of the presidential debate this week. we wanted to do something a little bit different. we asked the guys to select the strongest points that candidates made. gutfeld was assigned governor romney and mcguirk president obama. >> i should have watched the debate. rerun of dawson's creek so i missed the next thing. obama let mitt win so people could stop talking about that 2007 speech it was genius. joke. how could this be a surprise? you have a successful businessman who wipes the floor with a grad student. you have guy who knows jobs and a guy who knows jay-z. a guy who had a career. a guy who had a canine. there is no comparison and the most important thing is, this is what nobody is talking about. mitt had to win big. he couldn't just win. if he had just won, the press wouldn't would have given it to obama. he had to disseminate obama in order to just to get a victory. >> bill: how did he do it gutfeld. >> eye contact. eye contact. >> bill: just eye contact? it's the laser stare? >> yes. it seemed that mitt was extremely open and confident about himself strictly through eye cont
right to tonight's big story. we're with john mccain, former presidential candidate, and he joins me now. welcome to you, senator. >> thank you, piers. >> when it comes to the debate, you were one of the only people, actually, who has debated both barack obama and mitt romney, so you are in a unique place to tell me what you made of both of their performance. whatever way you spin this from the republican side, the job front has to be good news not only for the president but also america, but the number has now gone down to 7.8% for the first time since 8% of his presidency. >> i think that's found to be good news, but i also think you have to take it in the context that 7.8% is still unacceptably high. but it is good news, and i think it's going to be of some help to the president, but certainly with the numbers of unemployed americans we have now, the 23 million, i guess it is, it's still an unacceptable situation. i think the president will concede that. >> jack welsh said today, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything, can't debate so change the numbers. is the
president obama. and as you point out, it was widely covered at the time. he was an announced presidential candidate. so there was nothing secret about this on-camera, open-press event. >> but mike, did the media fail to cover it completely? did it leave out parts that would have been harmful to president obama, which is the argument made by the daily caller? >> yeah, i think in any speech like this, you're going to do it selectively. and apparently, then-senator obama departed notably from his text, maybe a lot of the stories were done. but what we're seeing, willie, here is a video that's designed to play to the republican base, to remind them that whatever they think about mitt romney, he's better than barack obama, if you're a hard-right conservative republican. so this is to get them to stick with their choice and to turn out. >> and then quickly on the paul ryan video. what do you make of that? he says only 70% of americans want the american dream. the other 30% want the welfare state. >> willie, if you listen to the whole tape, what i took away from it is that mitt romney would be a
